I dig the tone of the Barber Direct Drive. "Dumble-esque" is how i describe it, it's got a nice midrange, with 'buckers it is possible to approximately ape Robben Fords tone, running on 12-18V for max headroom.

The Vintage Rat is really nice too, set to "just about smoking" on the gain, it is phat.

A combo that I wish I still had was the Ibanez MT-10 Mostortion, feeding a Rat 2. Rat 2 gain set right before it starts to compress, then the MT-10 set with just enough volume and crunch. Holy Mother of Mammaries, its the recipe for instant Jeff Beck. The "basag" tone of the MT-10 feeding the fatness of the Rat 2. (Miss you!  :cry:) turned my strat into a special effects machine. Sarap ng texture and midrange. Hopefully BAMF can "clone" this into one pedal, a mosfet boost with 3 stage eq feeding a vintage rat clone.

Vegetablejoe's pimped Arion tubulator feeding Blue Buddha's Vox was nice and memorable, got a great overdrive outta that combo. Smoooth...

But my heart is still captured by my BAMFX DS-1 Bakemono. Swiss Army knife of overdrive for my tastes. Cuts through the mix like a ginzu knife, versatile and ultra dynamic. Just the right amount of hair and clarity.

I'm surprised no one's mentioned the Rat yet ..

Probably has one of the widest gain sweeps of any dirt pedal, with very usable (and great) tones at every point. Fascinating lil' black box ..  :-)

heheheheh, you posted ata while I was drafting mine... daga daga daga daga  :-D

you dirty rat...
you get more lows... i like it...

and also has good overdrive sounds... ganda ring i isabay together with BM...
i own them both

YDR can also produce fuzzy sounds... but i'd rather buy a fuzz pedal... kekekek

gusto ko rin yung full-drive2 ay... nakakaihi ang tunog, total goosebumps...
pero sa ngayon yung YDR and BM are fine with me...

was used by guitarist of "Marias mistress" wayback they have used the silver enclosure version pa that time

(V-Twin)


...and I bet this v1 bottle rocket is the next generation has more improvements....with a true bypass switch and the glorious of all time 12AX7 driver vacuum tube is still around

many are called but only the few are chosen to afford this  :-D

whoaa!

My Nobels ODR-1 (really nice, i doubt if i'll ever sell this one).....  although i hope to get a TS9 reissue soon....

Chum

Now, we are 3 who owns this relic pedal  :-D I think SpilledMilk also has this gem! I think, this is the warmest OD that I've used (TS9, Bad Monkey, SD-1, OD-3) It can also go to distortion zone as well... really the best money I've ever spent on!! Couple it with a TS-9 (stock) sustain heaven...................

Vintage rules!!
  :mrgreen:


i had 1 of this.. it can really drive the tube amps!! transparently.......and thinking to make 1 DIY with a true bypass..
I compare it to my  DIY Landgraff DOD and 1 of my japanesse pedal overdrive..it has different sounding.. paglalong tumatagal sumasakit ang ears ko...heheh..pero sa Nobels pasok na pasok!! :-D..

ito review ng isa.....
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4100237625254262444&q=nobels+odr-1&hl=en

Si Sir Oloc meron din nito!!! :-D.... and 1 of our pinoy giutarist idol has one of this right now!!! :-o
Sana pareview din sila!!!  :-D  :-D

yep yep i have 1. and back to basics ako ngaun...eto na lang gain pedal ko. pero once i used this with an MIJ Ds-1 before it (as if the nobels is  a tube amp on slight drive...and the ds-1 is a booster)...and man....chug chug sustaaaaaaaaaain....but somehow i felt too much power was like cheating...so now im selling the ds-1 and im sticking with the odr-1 (although im thinking of getting another OD to boost it...baka iba kalabasan)

you'll get as many answers as there are overdrives...  personally, i use whatever will do the job best... OD3, TS808, Rat... they're all good for somethin... the secret is knowing when and where they're good, and when they're not...

Used:
Digitech Bad Monkey
TS-9
TS-7
OD-3

Have:
Digitech Screamin' Blues
Ibanez TS-5 Soundtank (Self-Modded and rehoused)

Best: TS-5, Bad Monkey.

I highly regret buying the Screamin' Blues instead of the Bad Monkey. I was looking for an Overdrive/Distortion pedal then. I realized now that it should be either overdrive, or distortion.
